Update on buying SIM Card at FCO

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling from California to Italy next week, arriving at Terminal 3 at FCO. From there I will pick up a rental car and drive directly to a small village in Tuscany near the coast. Since I won't be going into Rome or passing through any larger towns on my way, I hope to be able to purchase a SIM card for my unlocked GSM iPhone 6 at the airport. I've done some travel forum searching and see many posts stating that there is nowhere to purchase a SIM card after arrival at Terminal 3 without going to a different terminal and, perhaps, having to go through security (which requires a ticket). Most of those posts are several years old, however. The current FCO shopping map shows a TIM store in the Terminal 3 arrival area. Can anyone who has been there recently confirm that there is, in fact, a TIM store that can be accessed after arrival at Terminal 3 where SIM cards can be purchased?
